First time using RAW on the Chronos, captured the Beast from the East.

Updated original post with a couple more people using Chronos.
My internet is FINALLY up, so can go back to recording and uploading, so experiment more soon!
Can't wait for 0.3.

Pretty sure all of that would be EXTREMELY easy to get around with Open Sourcing stuff with easy implementation methods / software?

Does it support width of less than 96px? As a vertical pixel strip of maximum resolution height with a 1px width is what most would use.
For example a side profile shot of a bullet in mid air from left to right.

If you can incorporate this in some manner I think it would be awesome. Especially for content creators and photographers in the high speed niche.
Theoretically whats the maximum fps the sensor could handle? I think if you can put even a basic test feature of this in, you'd REALLY turn some heads in the industry.
Something like a 500K fps slitscan would lead to some INCREDIBLE images being made, particularly for ballistics / explosives.

Hi David and others!
Just wondering after reading a lot of articles online about photo finishes, is it possible to make the Chronos read out a 1x720px image at even higher speeds for stuff such as high velocity weapons etc? So we could create high res 'frozen in time' style images from the footage using something like Slit Cam?

As the bullet or projectile would travel through the horizontal axis creating a full image of itself, so we only need the vertical resolution?
Would this make the camera be able to record insanely high speeds?
Is it even possible? Just an idea.

Keep forgetting to put this up.
A week or two ago made a laser cut 'splash shield' for the camera.  It's made from 3mm acrylic and is designed to protect both the ports on the side, exposing only power and trigger but mostly to keep water out of the front intake vents.  Air is drawn in through the bottom on the left and exhaust it through the top and right.
It was made to be used on a tripod, not sitting directly on a flat surface. And I'm assured that it won't block airflow to any amount that matters.

The idea was just to stop casual splashing, for example, using the camera near a swimming pool, throwing rocks in buckets, waterballons and other places where flying droplets and small splashes are involved. It's not to protect the lens, just stop water from being pulled into the camera by the fan and keep dust out of the side ports.

Everything mounts with 6, m6 bolts/screws/whatever you wish.. If you countersink the holes you can make for quite a clean install. If your extra worried, put some tape over the top between the acrylic and camera, as well as over the SD card slot and microphone(Or even over everything).  The hole in the center is 40mm by about 12mm deep) and fits at least the standard Prime lens and even larger ones I have.  The flatter one should give more clearance. Or you can make the 40mm hole a bit larger on the top plate, up to, say, 45mm or so(Just enough to overlap with the lower mounts).
The side plate is the only tricky bits, it's mirrored, made to be cut from below with the two audio ports 1.5mm deep engraves done from the back rather than full cuts.

I have other versions that include only the port guard and  just the splash guard that fits tighter to the front(Has only 1 instead of 2 stand-offs and don't use the side connections) that if interested I can post too.  Or even the original .svg with all the messy work. :)

As someone whos primary videos are destructive and typically messy, this would be AWESOME for me.
Mind PM'ing me?

Footage dump. I have been running the supersonic ping pong ball cannon quite a bit lately.

A Motorola Razr, turns out they are made of metal:

Been looking at these as they go up, always awesome. I want someone to make me a cannon :P
Here are some snapper fireworks exploding at 21K fps:

Mechanical drawings! Yes!  Expect laser cut splash shield designs and dust covers in the next few days.
(Was planing this anyway, but now it makes things trivial.)

This could be helpful for my channel and upcoming videos.
Explosions + Dust + Vapor = Bad for poor Chronos.
DM me? :)

Can you see it at different resoltions and frame rates, also is it always in the same place on the sensor (same rows)? Is the pattern the same every time?

Edit: Is that a flymo?

It is at different resolutions / rates, and different rows. Also yes, a flymo :P

I've seen that on some units when cold, it's a problem with signal timing, and there's a fix in the next coming software update. As a workaround, let the camera warm up fully, and if needed you can partially tape up the fan if it's cold outside. You don't have to worry about the camera overheating, as long as the case stays below 50C you're fine, and it has a thermal shutdown if it for some reason gets too hot.

Were you using the camera in cold weather?


It was fairly cold outside and hadn't been on long, so it very well could be that! Glad to see it be taken care of as some footage is ruined by it sadly.
Nice to know you are on top of it all! <3

This was filmed at 720p, black cal was done, the stripes appear on the footage prior to saving also...

Hi guys, attached an image of the problem, I get sections of sometimes 100s of frames with moving variable colour noise like this, all over different parts of the image.

Filmed some bubbles today, although it was probably too windy!

Anyone think it could be a cool idea to do a Chronos 1.4 Footage Compilation on one of the larger YouTubers channels?
I think Tao did something like this a long time ago?
Be a great way to get some of the cool footage we all film into public eyes.
Of course it would only be with the generosity of one of these remarkable larger channels. But I think it would make for some good viewing!

Managed to get a short clip of some lightning last night.
Sadly it was mostly horizontal and no strikes in the vicinity to capture.
Still looks cool I think.
